Angry villagers protest, vandalise panchayat office in Amphan-hit WB

Published on :

Kolkata, June 22 (IANS) Thousands of villagers staged protests in various cyclone Amphan-devastated districts of West Bengal on Monday demanding aid from the state government to rebuild their ravaged shelters.

The incidents took place in South 24-Parganas Sagar Island, North 24-Parganas Deganga and Kolkata’s twin Howrah district as villagers staged protests outside government offices and vandalised local panchayat buildings as well.

According to police sources, irate villagers went on a rampage at Sumatinagar at Sagar Island protesting misappropriation of Amphan relief funds of the state government. They claimed that the local panchayat office had sent a flawed list of cyclone-affected families depriving the real ones who actually suffered a huge loss during the cyclone.

Similarly, villagers also staged protests at Deganga area blocking the Taki main road. Protests also took place at Howrah’s Makardah locality.
